Local Comic Shop Day® is on Wednesday, November 24th.

For the second year in a row, Local Comic Shop Day® will land on a Wednesday. According to Marco Davanzo, Executive Director of ComicsPRO – the organization that runs Local Comic Shop Day®, “We moved Local Comic Shop Day® from Saturday to Wednesday last year and more stores participated. Because Wednesday is the day that new comics tradionally come out, it made a lot of sense to make that move”.

The goal of Local Comic Shop Day® is to get comic fans into their local shop for the holidays – to celebrate the local comic shop. It’s open to ALL comic stores. Stores do not need to register, although if they register they may get more exposure and potentially order additional items.

Three Items have been announced for Local Comic Shop Day.
More will be announced soon.

JOY OPERATIONS 1

Dark Horse Comics

Brian Michael Bendis, the New York Times bestselling, Peabody and multi-Eisner award winning co-creator of Miles Morales, Naomi, Jessica Jones, and Powers, teams up with scorching hot comics sensation Stephen Byrne (Wonder Twins, Legion of Superheroes) for their very first creator-owned blockbuster series.

Fifty-five years from now. Joy is an EN·VOI. A special agent of one of the JONANDO TRUST. Trusts are corporate-owned cities that are the centerpiece of modern society. She rights wrongs for the trust. She is excellent.
Perfection. Hard on herself. Driven. Almost legendary in some parts. Until one day a voice pops in her head trying to get her to betray everything she has ever believed.

This meticulously-designed Akira meets All of Me journey shows us a new future like only comics can. All this and also an exclusive look behind-the-scenes and a look forward to other Jinxworld projects coming exclusively to Dark Horse.

Featuring an all-new LCSD variant cover by Tyler Boss! On sale 11/24!
